mguj1130 Posted July 13, 2010 Share Posted July 13, 2010 Hello everyone, I'm going to be applying for PhD programs this fall for engineering. I have started working on my statement of purpose and had a question about how to word my post PhD plans. I know for a fact that I do NOT want to enter academia and would much much prefer to go work in the industry. Should I clearly state this in my personal statement or is it looked down upon to not be interested in being a professor? I don't want to lie and act like I plan on becoming a professor but I don't want my true intentions to be a turn off for admission committees....thanks for any input!
